Obama, the born-again Catholic

The following comes from a May 24 story on the Daily Caller website.

Amid polls showing that his efforts to regulate religious institutions have hurt his image among Catholics, President Barack Obama has begun touting his early ties to the church.

“My first job as a community organizer was with Catholic churches who taught me the power of kindness and commitment to others in neighborhoods,” he declared at a Hollywood fundraiser May 23.

“When I was a young community organizer, I was working with Catholic churches and they taught me that no government program can make as much of a difference as kindness and commitment on the part of neighbors and friends,” he said at a Colorado fundraiser earlier that day.

This new emphasis on his ties to the Catholic Church is a change from Obama’s previous speeches and fundraisers, where he did not mention that, early in his career, he was funded and supported by liberal Catholic officials in Chicago.

His Chicago supporters included a radical Catholic priest, Father Michael Pfleger, who has since been admonished by senior church officials for political advocacy.

Obama’s emphasis on his Catholic ties come as polls show a sharp drop in his support among swing-voting Catholics in battleground states after his February imposition of regulations on churches.

An April poll from Pew reported that Obama’s approval among non-Hispanic Catholics dropped from 45 percent in March to 37 percent in April, while support for Romney rose from 51 percent to 57 percent. That shift could swing the decision in critical swing-states, including Ohio and Pennsylvania.

If broadcast on TV, Obama’s new emphasis on his Catholic ties could bolster his weakened standing among many liberal Catholics, especially those who rarely attend church. It could also boost his support among the many Hispanic Catholics in battleground states like Nevada, North Carolina and Florida….

Obama’s use of his Catholic ties came April 3 at a lunch of media professionals arranged by the Associated Press.

“Some of you know my first job in Chicago was working with a group of Catholic churches that often did more good for the people in their communities than any government program could,” he said.

He cited those ties on April 10, May 5, April 10 and May 10, when he told donors in Seattle that “as a young man, I worked with a group of Catholic churches who taught me that no poverty program can make as much of a difference as the kindness and commitment of a caring soul.”

However, he has not mentioned his Catholic past in numerous other fundraisers, including several given after his May 9 endorsement of same-sex marriage….

The President is associating himself now with Catholics because he needs their vote. This is done only for political reasons. Unfortunately, the majority of the American bishops are behaving exactly like the Austrian bishops did when the Austrians were voting on joining Hitler’s Germany. There are only a few courageous bishops who are lone voices crying in the devasted vineyard. Hopefully these voices will be heard above the cacophony that is resonating from most Chancery Office. God save us if we re-elect this modern day anti-christ.

Obama studied marxist Saul Alinksy as a community organizer. The following is from Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”. – “True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism, Alinsky taught. They cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within. Alinsky viewed revolution as a slow, patient process. The trick was to penetrate existing institutions such as churches, unions and political parties…. ” “Obama learned his lesson well. I am proud to see that my father’s model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday.” –Letter from L. DAVID ALINSKY, son of Neo-Marxist Saul Alinsky You can find this on the internet.

Obama is anathema to all things Catholic. He supports the murdering of babies including using US tax dollars both in the USA and abroad. He is smart, tricks those who are not alert, and can not be trusted to tell the truth or keep his word. He has proven all of this. – Sounds like someone in the Bible – yes? Obama is anything he believes he needs to be to get re-elected. His actions over the past 4 years and prior to that when he was in the Senate speak louder than his words.

Don’t be fooled by Obama’s effort to identify himself with the Catholic Church. He’s a clever and devious politician who is no friend of the Church. He has proven repeatedly in promising one thing and doing just the opposite. Under no circumstances can he be trusted. He is moving our country toward Socialism and his New World Order, and his early, intimate ties with radicals are influencing his idea of what direction our government should take, and is taking. Obama must be defeated in 2012.

And the name that he is hiding: ACORN, which is still alive and still working to help him destroy this country. This man know no shame and it is time for the USCCB to hold special Masses for his conversion and salvation, and at the same time, ask for God’s Mercy on themselves, for helping OBAMANISM to become law of the country, by their blindness and lack of teachings on birth-control (of which, most of them support), sex-education, abortion and homosexual activities that are being taught in schools. Much to be answered for on their meeting Jesus face to face. +JMJ+

This makes me sick. Obama is a user and abuser of all things Catholic. Apparently he did not learn about kindness to the pre-born from his Chicago Catholic associates…..Obama is a dispicable Socialist, Godless tyrant. God help Catholics and all other true Christians if he will rule for another four years, and God help those Catholics, especially priests and bishops, who vote for this monster. “Vengance is mine”, saith the Lord.

Oh goodie, Obama is washed in the blood of the … Lamb??? No, wait, he’s awash in the blood of millions of unborn aborted babies, as are the so called Catholics including bishops and cardinals who have allowed and promoted him. Where are the clergy who should interpret the photo ops to the non-thinking branch of the Church?

This man is such a liar. He would say or do anything to keep his position of power and authority. What amazes me is anyone believes anything he says, or even cares. In a more rational world he would be kept in place with those who think they are Napoleon where he can’t hurt himself or others. He smoked too much dope and had too strange a childhood to be allowed to have any position that affects society at large. Jesus said we are to be” as wise as serpents’…he meant we’re not to be gullible dupes. How can we be ‘innocent as doves’ if we elect cynical, Machiavellian leaders who corrupt everything they touch?

As a white Catholic, I grew up (starting about 86 years ago) working alongside many black people-some of whom I always respected and loved as much as family members-but the color lines are still very distinct. Never will I feel able to say that I can relate exactly to those distinctions. Obama has quite a stretch to match his Moslem and black backgrounds to standard Catholic ideas which are still fought against by CINO’s-contraception in particular.

Obama can be this outrageous because the American bishops allow him. I figure the Bishops are holding out for more government money and as soon as Obama and the DEMs make the commitment, the bishops will praise him publicly—about October 2012, right before the election.

Then why won’t he modify the HHS mandate accordingly? All the Catholic organizations want is the right to maintain their religious freedom. Forcing all insurance companies to cover abortion and birth control will directly affect them because many Catholic organizations offer their own insurance. Birth control costs about $9/month. What’s the big deal if people pay for that out of pocket? Regarding abortions…that shouldn’t be covered anyway. Why should insurance companies have to cover peoples’ sex lives?

I was hoping this article would have said something about Pope Benedict XVI scolding Obama for his promotion of abortion. We have to remember, the Pope will meet and pray for all world leaders and speak the Truth of Jesus Christ. He did so with the Castro regime and I am sure did not praise our president for the atrocities committed by this administration. It takes a tremendously holy man to meet with someone who is so vehemently against all that is good. God Love You.

Let’s quit kidding ourselves here, Obama from day one of his presidency has used traitorious apostate Catholics, like Biden, Pelosi and Sebilus to push his agenda, which is basically a divide and conquer policy. His motives are based upon deceiving and lying and sadly many Catholics became suckers and fell for it.

the poor pope is so busy trying to get people, including world leadders, to be decent, it must be depressing. he deals with oppressive governments, terroritsts, countries that perswecute christians, politicans who support abortion, and right there in italy people who don’t believe in having children because they prefer to have more wealth for themselves!!! this is why the muslim immigrants are taking over italy and other european countries, because4 they are actually OPEN to having children and do so…

The eyes are often the window to the soul. Obama is standing right next to the Vicar of Christ on earth and his eyes arrogantly say, “I WILL NOT SERVE!” Satan also claimed to have close ties with the Church when he convinced a multitude of angels to fall right down from the heavens so that they too would eternally serve him from the fiery pits of hell.

Obama is not only in favor of abortion, he even advocated letting a baby die, in some sort of “Comfort Room”, if the baby survived the abortion. Evil!

No more cooperation with this evil. No cooperation with mandated abortifacients, contraception, adoption to unmarried couples. None of it. Resist at every turn, no closing down orphanages, hosptials, colleges or any other Catholic institution. Make the oppressors come an drag the doctors and nurses off themselves if they insist on enforcing these immoral mandates. Make the government do the dirty work themselves. We don’t need to shut down our own Catholic institutions, we need to resist, no matter what the immoral demands. Do not cooperate in any way with any intrinsic evil.

One of the strongest things we can do in this whole horrible situation is to pray for Obama and the salvation of his immortal soul; also to pray for deliverance of our country from Obama and from those who he serves, because he does not act alone in this whole drama; he is at the beck and call of others who control him. More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of!

He will definitely win the re-election — do doubt about it. The only religion that will continue to thrive under Obama is Islam. Mosques will continue to increase in large numbers, radical Muslims will gain top-posts in his government, more and more muslims will enter the country, and sooner or later, they will demand Shariah Law. America, return to Jesus and go back to the roots of Christianity — that’s the only solution.

This is where my contributions to the Catholic Church were spent? On this agitator, and on sexually sinful priests and hierarchy who cover up their mess? No wonder we have growing moral evil in society in general — the Church did not lead the way out of evil, but contributed to this with cooperating with, supporting, and shielding morally bankrupt people, and we funded this. You yourself have to be more Catholic than the Church and the people who run it.

Obama is the puppet of powerful anti-Catholic cabals and secret societies promoting population control, embryonic stem-cell research, and abortion on demand. He shamelessly appears at apostate institutions like Notre Dame to play stupid liberal Catholics for suckers, assuming they will sell out the unborn for socialized medicine. Sadly, they do. Don’t be a sucker for Illuminati population control. Reject Obammunism and this Manchurian Candidate before it’s too late. If you thought the HHS mandate was obnoxious, death panels for granny are on the way. No Catholic should support this creep or this evil agenda. Those who do should be excommunicated.

“Rules for Radicals” is exactly what the 60’s have wrought and it ain’t no good. Why protest in the streets when change can be effected from within instead of from without. It has occurred in Academia,Ecclessia,and Corporate America with outside influence of “one-world”organizations not only to shape the United States but the entire world and very much including undermining the Catholic Church (clergy and laity) to “destroy” it. Satan never rests. Like a roaring lion the devil has gone down to earth knowing he has but a short time left.

As I wrote more than once in these posts, we must be informed and do our homework. Yes, the secular press does take that cynical attitude of ho hum it’s another weirdo proclaiming the birth certificate nonsense…that is just what the nazis did whenever anyone would raise questions about their pograms. ho hum, indeed. Not only does his birth certificate NOT hold up under examination, they recently found his bio listed with his book agent which showed his picture and said he was born in Kenya. You’d think if it weren’t true he would have refuted it at the time, wouldn’t you? Apparently this is one thing his keepers were not able to conceal.

America’s Most Biblically-Hostile U. S. President 1. Acts of hostility toward people of Biblical faith: April 2008 – Obama speaks disrespectfully of Christians, saying they “cling to guns or religion” and have an “antipathy to people who aren’t like them.” 1 February 2009 – Obama announces plans to revoke conscience protection for health workers who refuse to participate in medical activities that go against their beliefs, and fully implements the plan in February 2011. 2 April 2009 – When speaking at Georgetown University, Obama orders that a monogram symbolizing Jesus’ name be covered when he is making his speech. 3 May 2009 – Obama declines to host services for the National Prayer Day (a day established by federal law) at the White House. 4 April 2009 – In a deliberate act of disrespect, Obama nominated three pro-abortion ambassadors to the Vatican; of course, the pro-life Vatican rejected all three. 5 October 19, 2010 – Obama begins deliberately omitting the phrase about “the Creator” when quoting the Declaration of Independence – an omission he has made on no less than seven occasions. 6 November 2010 – Obama misquotes the National Motto, saying it is “E pluribus unum” rather than “In God We Trust” as established by federal law. 7 January 2011 – After a federal law was passed to transfer a WWI Memorial in the Mojave Desert to private ownership, the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that the cross in the memorial could continue to stand, but the Obama administration refused to allow the land to be transferred as required by law, and refused to allow the cross to be re-erected as ordered by the Court. 8 February 2011 – Although he filled posts in the State Department, for more than two years Obama did not fill the post of religious freedom ambassador, an official that works against religious persecution across the world; he filled it only after heavy pressure from the public and from Congress. 9 April 2011 – For the first time in American history, Obama urges passage of a non-discrimination law that does not contain hiring protections for religious groups, forcing religious organizations to hire according to federa

For those who are still dealing with the “birthing” issue, let me help you through the maze of crazy, nutty stuff that is still flying around the country. Let us stipulate that President Obama was born. Let us also stipulate that his mother was a citizen of the United States. Based on those two facts alone, we must also stipulate that the President is a natural born citizen of the United States. He could have been born in a snow cave in Antartica and he would still be a citizen of the United States because his mother was a citizen. That’s all!

max, there has been no real (legitimate) birth certificate for Obama presented by Hawaii. The birth certificate that was originally published was proven not to be legitimate, a forgery, and sloppy at that. The question that the good Sheriff Arpaio is trying to get answered is: Is there a legitimate birth certificate proving Obama was born in the USA (Hawaii)? Hawaii keeps stonewalling the legal system which makes Obama look guilty. Obama is also dragging his feet against the legal system. Arpaio is merely doing his job, since it is unconstitutional to have anyone run for President of the US who was not born in the USA. Personally I don’t understand why Hawaii and Obama don’t put this to bed – unless he is not legitimate.

He is always looking at polls to see what he can get by with, for instance he decided from polls that most Catholics use contraception, so he figured he could get by with HHS mandate, so now that he’s getting some opposition he is talking about how great the Catholic Church is. I hope to God Catholics wake up come election day. All the Catholic newspapers I’ve read including the local one all talk about the mandate. They are not getting the message from the pulpit however.

This is one Catholic who will not vote for Obama. His stance on abortion without limitation and free contraceptives paid for by church ministries should be enough to wake up even the soundest of sleepers among Catholics. This type of thinking has produced a demographic disaster over the past fifty years and if we look beyong the religious implications it wouldn’t take a rocket scientist to discover where we are going should this continue. Satan loves to mock the sacraments and same sex “marriage” as advocated by Obama again serve to stir the pot of demographic collapse as well as moral collapse. This is the most devisive president ever to serve in the oval office and his “War on Women” rhetoric while trying to curry favor with Catholics and other well meaning people hopefully will backfire for him when we go to the polls in November. Lincoln once said that you can foll some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time. I only pray that many who were fooled in 2008 will not repeat thier folly this year.

Especially Max & MacDonald and FYI JLS, Dana … take it back further. Back in the late summer of 2008, Hilary Clinton supporter & PA State Democratic Party official Philip Berg, PA attorney filed a lawsuit to try to get the Obama campaign to produce a long form vault version of his birth certificate to prove his place of birth, along the way they found that all of his records were locked down at: Occidental U., Columbia U., Harvard Law School, Harvard Law Review, time spent on a Annenberg Foundation Board with Bill Ayers. READ the lawsuit, especially and including the Addendum/Appendixes. They got recorded testimony from his paternal Grandmother Sarah Obama that she was there at his birth, naming the hospital in Kenya where he was born. The people getting the testimony said everyone was trying to hush her up. They found it was common knowledge (and a point of pride that he was born there). When they went to the hospital, they acknowledged he was born there, and that they had a copy of the birth certificate, but that it was locked up, no one could see it. The leader of the country (President/PM) subsequently took custody of it. The lawsuit (which had the best research behind it) was always dismissed based on “lack of standing”, NEVER on MERIT. I prayed about this, and felt that this should not be my issue. But it ticks me off to no end the ignorance, lies and obfuscation which has gone on about this. Read the lawsuit: Berg v Obama, et al … if it hasn’t been “scrubbed or altered on the internet already. Answer this, why did Obama campaign lawyers spend close to $1,000,000, if not more, to fight this (and others), to keep the case from being heard? Why did they fight so hard to keep it snuffed out? Why did they present one “birth certificate” as the legitimate one for so long, then came up with another one when that Trump guy started raising a stink about it back in the beginning of the Republican primary season. Questions about it were always met with

The Catholic Churc is ready to sue Obama and his Health Care bill!!!!!!!! That says it all.

Mike, get a look at the law. You do not have to be born in the United States to be a native born citizen. You only need to have one parent be a citizen. You can be born anywhere. Romney was born in Mexico. McCain was born in Panama. All of the stuff about no visible “complete” birth certificate from Hawaii is false. The complete birth certificate, not the certificate of live birth that is normal in Hawaii, states the time of birth, the attending doctor, the name of the mother and father and where they were born. Go to reliable sources on the web and you can see the official copies of all the records certified by the appropriate government official for the state of Hawaii.

Bob One, tell us that you have seen the real birth certificate. Also, tell us how dual citizenship does not disqualify someone from being president. The state of Hawaii has not made a birth certificate for obama public; no one has testified to actually seeing one. Evidently your religion allows or promotes lying. What religion, btw, is yours, Bob One? Let me guess, your religion is the religion of lust.

PA, St John informs us that there were then and there are now, “many anti-christs” running around. Obama is one of them.

Thank goodness we in Australia have Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as our head. If Americans vote for Obama again you deserve all you get. Ditch the Republic, and re-embrace the British Monarchy.

There is nothing Catholic about Obama.

Sadly a lot of people will be swayed by Obama’s political strutting – but remember this when you put an X for Obama in the next election your really putting an X for the murder of an Unborn American

Romney’s father, George, was born in Mexico – not Mitt. But the Republican party didn’t have any issue with George running for president in 1968. As for the nonsense that Obama was born in Kenya, I’d like to see the flight connections and the ticket prices necessary to go from Hawaii to Kenya in pre-jet age 1961. It would have least been Hawaii to California to New York to London to Narobi, followed by the Land Rover ride to Obama’s village on the other side of the country. Quite an ordeal, just so that Dad can introduce his girlfriend to his wife. Pretty idiotic, frankly. Not that it matters where he was born – see Romney, George and McCain, John, above.

To all the Obama supporters can anyone of you explain why all of his school records are sealed, what are the political hacks who support this incompetent and petulant man trying to hide from the rest of us????

Both Boing and Douglas had full size jet liners flying from 1958 on. The route would be from Hawaii to Indonesia to Kenya, very simple one day jaunt.


Posted Thursday, May 31, 2012 9:00 AM By JLS
Romney is not a dual citizen, as is Obama, who may even be a triple citizen (Kenya, Indonesia, USA). The qualifier is “natural born” citizen: Obama does not qualify on this level either. No matter how one looks at it, Obama is not legally qualified to be president. The root of the issue, as another blogger posted, is loyalty to the USA … Obama has none.

Barbara McGrady, when QEII becomes Catholic, then it would be something to consider. But word has it that she has been a disaster to England.

Canisius, noting the obvious – that the notion that Obama was born in Kenya is a fairy-tale – is hardly support for Obama. By that standard, Ann Coulter is an Obama supporter. As for “sealed” school records – report cards aren’t public records, and I don’t remember seeing, or remember anyone asking for any other president’s grades. So why does Obama not provide them? There are probably three reasons: One, he got crappy grades. Two, its bullcrap, never requested of any other President. Three, he benefits from an opposition that marginalizes itself through association with birther loons.

Please, please. Pray and fast. Let us not spend time on all this negativity. Just make sure you don’t vote for Obama in November or anyone else who publicly supports abortion and all the other evils that are contrary to God’s Commandments and His Divine Will. We all need to PRAY for President Obama’s converstion and his salvation. WE KNOW THAT IS GOD’S WILL!

The school records of all other presidents and many candidates are in the public domain.

I’m no great fan of the current President of the United States, but I wasn’t when President Bush held the office, either. That being said, it’s ridiculous for us to fall for the crackpots who claim Obama was born on Mars or in Botswana or whatever. It’s equally ridiculous to listen to the loons who claim he’s a Muslim rather than a Protestant. Good grief: it’s like reading the National Enquirer sometimes, all these zany theories. (P.S. Procter & Gamble is not run by the devil, either…)

JLS, you are going off the deep end again. What does my religion have to do with any comments I may have submitted. For the record, I’m an orthodox Roman Catholic from birth. Now, let me ask you why you and others continue to do the birther thing. The fact is, that the State of Hawaii has released the complete birth certificate for Mr. Obama and have certified that it is correct and true. It is unusual for Hawaii to release a complete birth certificate. It shows that he was born in Hawaii of a Kenyan father and U.S. mother. It indicated the name of the hospital ( now closed I understand) and is signed by the attending doctor. What else do you want? Oh, by the way, why do you call people nasty names all the time. Why not stick to the subject under discussion. There was a time when you were very provocative in your comments. Now much less so, but more annoying.

JLS, thanks for showing us how little reality intrudes upon Birthers. Even now, over 50 years later, an Hawaii to Kenya trip is a two-stop minimum, and the quickest travel time is over thirty hours! As for passenger jets in 1958, yes, there were a few, but to take one to Kenya you had to get to London first. Flights there went to Rome, then Beirut, then Khartoum, then Entebbe Uganda, leaving only a few hundred miles to go into Kenya. Stop drinking the Kool-Aid, dude.

Tothis Mark of PA. Now I am not a prophet by any stretch and do not expect anyone to take my thoughts as such. I have been a Fr. Gobbi fan since 1976. He died last June. I had seen him about 3 times when he came to the states at different times. Anyway he had not been to the states for awhile, but made a little trip to N. Miami for like a 3 day cenacle. He was headed to S. America, but stopped here. I think he had a lay cenacle on Sunday or Monday, but on Tuesday he had priest cenacle (priests only) and that was the Tuesday that Obama was being inaugurated. Fr. Gobbi was to return to the USA last fall, but went to his heavenly reward instead. I often thought about and if it meant anything! Also I think of the 31/2 years and of the other 3 1/2 years….and sure hope Obama has nothing to do with prophecy…if he wins in Nov. I am going to worry a bit!! We don’t know enough about this man, at times I wonder, he seems to have some strangeness about or around him. Anyway, this year will be 40 years since Fr. Gobbi heard Our Lady. You can look up Marian Movement of Priests, if you are not familiar. The main request is to consecrate ourselves, our families to the Immaculate Heart of Mary……times are urgent. Others may some ideas or thoughts about this man who is our president……is it far fetched Mark…….maybe, maybe not?

To the moderator…I posted regarding Fr. Gobbi, thought it went under this topic…Pope and Obama, but it looked like it went under the baby girl article? Don’t know how this happened? Sorry. Hope you don’t post this one. Thanks, Carolyn

When I was just a Nominee for the U.S. Naval Academy, I had to present all of the Documents that the Obamanation has paid millions of our tax dollars to avoid presenting. Don’t want to believe me, just ask anyone who ever applied for any kind of Officers’ Training. God bless, yours in Their Hearts, Kenneth M. Fisher

kathleen, 10:57 AM Why do some of you improperly use lower case letters for your names? I pray every day for Obama in case he can use them. If he is the one I believe he is, he can’t use them and they will go to some other worthy soul (that is Catholic teaching); however, even if he is just one of them, it is highly doubtful that he would ever ask for God’s mercy. God bless, yours in Their Hearts, Kenneth M. Fisher

    OBAMA IS A LIAR…PERIOD!!! Nothing that he does is factual be rather an attempt to falsely manipulate ignorant Catholics!!! Obama is a MUSLIM and has (1) canceled the national “Day of Prayer”; yet attended the Muslim Holy Days, (2) TWO TIMES attempted to pass a law to allow the MURDER of BABIES who were “born” during partial birth abortions AND was the ONLY person to actually vote FOR said murderous laws TWICE, (3) was guilty of defrauding the government of $100 million in a “development scheme” with his pal, Tony, who is now in prison and to avoid prison himself and for his wife, BOTH of the Obamas, he and his wife, GAVE UP their law licenses!!! [Check it out, this is true!], (4) He LIED about his relationship with Tony and…

      The fact that you think Obama is a Muslim discredits everything else you have posted…and none of what you post is true.

  2. Rick Flores says:

    To provide further documentation: As a former government science adviser, I developed many “insider” contacts. However, I will only stick to information that can be verified by anyone. (1) Obama noted his religion as “Muslim” at the schools he attended and in college. In his own book, “The Audacity of Hope”, Obama admits “why” he decided to “join” a pseudo-Christian church…As his political career developed, his wife convinced him to “appear” more “Christian”, so they joined the Ultra-Extremist Church (Trinity United CoC) with an ultra-extremist pastor, Wright; (2) On the issue of his fraud with Tony Rezko: Tony Rezko (With Dan Mahru and David Brint) recruited Obama out of Harvard and operated under the company, REZMAR,…

  3. Rick Flores says:

    One final topic: Where was Obama born? I agree that it should be disturbing to any American that Obama has been allowed to FAKE his citizenship openly, it is off-topic here. However, it DOES relate to his being in ANY way “Catholic” or associated with the Catholic Church as it clearly demonstrates ONCE AGAIN that he is a LIAR as well as an enemy of the Catholic Church. In that sense, it is insulting for him to in any way connect himself with our holy and sacred faith!

    While I fully realize that ultimately Obama presented a falsified document from Hawaii, this does NOT change the other “legitimate” sources that openly contradict the notion that he was born in Hawaii.
    (1) Obama’s extremist-communist MENTOR was Frank Marshall…
